These decadent little morsels are like biting into sweet raspberry pillows covered in decadent chocolate.  Indulge your inner 4 year old this Easter weekend with a healthy, raw, dark chocolate treat.

 

Ingredients

Raspberry Cream
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut butter (not oil) warmed to liquid
  • 1/4 cup raw coconut nectar, or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp rosewater (optional)
  • 1 cup pureed organic raspberries
  • 1 tsp beet powder
  • a pinch sea salt
Chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups raw dark chocolate chunks, or chopped raw dark chocolate
Drizzle
  • 3 Tbsp coconut butter, warmed to liquid
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp raw coconut nectar, or maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Whisk together all ingredients until well combined, and scoop out the mixture by the mounded Tbsp (so it will be about 2 Tbsp each) onto a foil lined tray.
  2. Once they are all scooped out, place in the freezer for a few minutes to take away the sticky-ness on the outside, then shape each mound with your hands into little eggs (they do not need to look perfect, mine didn't).
  3. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes at least to harden.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in a bowl (I like to place mine in the dehydrator until it melts). Set the bowl next to the tray of eggs.
  5. Dip each one into the chocolate and place back on the tray (I use a fork and set the chocolate on it before dipping).
  6. Place the tray of chocolates back in the freezer once they are all dipped for a few minutes to set the chocolate.
  7. Meanwhile, to make the drizzle, whisk together all ingredients, adding a little water at a time (1 Tbsp) until it reaches glaze consistency. It will be clumpy at first, but it will smooth out.
  8. Drizzle over the eggs (I put it in a ziplock bag, and cut the corner off and squeezed it out).
  9. Place in the freezer again for about 10 minutes to set, then enjoy! Store extra in the fridge.

Notes

Note: all ingredients in this recipe must be at room temperature or warmer or when you mix them together they will clump up.
